Hi, Mac. WP has a new editor called Gutenberg…far different from the old WP editor. I’m sure you can figure it out, ’cause I kinda did. Make sure the tab on the right is on “document” rather than “blocks.”

Hi, Wheelizens!

Good morning, night-owl Mac!

Mac --

I was -- seemingly -- able to post and schedule a test thread for Saturday (which I’ve since deleted); I’ll try to put up something “for realz” later.

Probably won’t make any difference, but have you tried logging out and then back in?

Asinine local headline of the day: Marijuana grow house bust nets $35 million in drugs, 16 arrests:

https://www.gwinnettdailypost.com/local/marijuana-grow-house-bust-nets-million-in-drugs-arrests/article_9a6c0b07-6166-5f41-9a28-03d4588d95fe.html

Not much detail in the article:

On March 14, after months of work, detectives executed 15 search warrants in Gwinnett, Henry, and Clayton counties, which netted the 16 arrests.

As of Thursday, 3,174 marijuana plants had been recovered, along with a “significant amount” of additional evidence, including THC candy, THC oil, cocaine, illegal mushrooms, $676,517 in cash and six vehicles.

I have a very difficult time buying the $35M as being accurate. LE agencies tend to vastly inflate the “street value”; makes ’em look more “heroic”, I suppose.

IMO, waste of resources, given the number of murders, armed robberies, assaults, rapes and other crimes we have here. But “reefer madness” / Baptists & bootleggers”; impresses the rubes.

BBL.

Maybe they can sell that grass to distributors in CA where it’s legal and make some more money?

I just took a quick look and the blocks referred to are things like text blocks, paragraph blocks, bold, lists, etc. They aren’t permission-type blocks. If you add a block, the standard text formatting tools appear. As our blue-gloved TSWadministrator mentioned, in the far upper-right, if you choose “Document” instead of “Blocks” you can just type as you normally would.

Hope this helps.

It looks like you can still add Photobucket images in comments.
I used the direct link selection to get the URL, then used <img src=”url” />

Yeah, I did that through the dashboard. It’s actually been the only way that I have been consistently successful in posting images in comments for quite some time now.

Here’s an image just for Fatwa, taken from the intertoobz, not Photobucket:

Obviously Fatwa has some special pull with Jerry to keep me from posting capodimonte pictures.

And now it works!
I was digging around in the WP documentation and saw that you can enter an image URL and it will be converted to an image link, auto-magically. Maybe the all-knowing blue-glove has been adjusting settings.

I’d like a special pull, just not from Fatwa. Also, click on the camara icon when you either reply or begin a new comment. See how that works.

Hey, Jerry! It’s good to see you here! How’s the back? How’s the house? How are the neighbors?
